28th June 2019 - 20:20
The full team were paged at 20:20 and asked to back up our flank team, Portland Bill CRT. The Bill team had been tasked to a climber who had sustained a broken ankle near to Sharpitts, Weston.

The casualty had completed their climb, but had tripped and fallen whilst making their way back to the cliff top. Team members assessed the casualty, who was stable and in good spirits. Due to the location, Rescue 175 was tasked to the incident to extract the casualty. When on scene, Rescue 175 was immediately re-tasked to a high priority incident near to Solent, and departed.

With the requirement to winch still necessary, the NMOC tasked Rescue 187 from St. Athan to attend and facilitate the rescue. Rescue 187 arrived on scene and deposited they Paramedic to the base of the cliff with the casualty and CRO. Rescue 187 then landed on near to Blacknoor Fort. When the Helo paramedic was happy with the casualty condition, Rescue 187 then took off and winched the casualty directly aboard, making their way to the Dorchester Rugby Club, of which the Wyke MRU was awaiting their arrival.

Upon arrival, Wyke team members assisted with casualty transfer and secured the site until Rescue 187 had departed, allowing the team members to stand down after a very busy day.
